Wheatless pancakes

I made pancakes this morning for my son, who needed sustenance for his first day of first grade. I’ve meant to post this recipe for a long time; it is notable because it produces pancakes that contain no wheat but that still taste like pancakes. Click on the image for a printable PDF.

Optional tweaks:

  • The flour mixture given produces good results, but many others will as well. Try substituting sweet sorghum flour for the rice flour, or replacing a few tablespoons of the rice or oat flour with potato starch.
  • Add 1/2 cup of rolled oats to the batter for pancakes with superior texture.
  • Many sweeteners will work. I’ve used agave nectar and maple syrup, for example. I suspect coconut sugar would also work really well.

An infamous regular correspondent of this site has long advocated combining beer and cake. If you’re not already revolted by the very prospect, you may appreciate a new recipe I’ve devised for when one is interested in this combination but no cake is available:

Tejas Brownie


Mix gently 4 parts cold dark beer and 1 part chilled creme de cacao. Pour four or five ounces into each of several small tumblers and serve immediately, before you or your guests have time to fully consider the prospect of drinking a beverage inspired by beer and cake.
